You want silica packs inside a les parfait locking jar inside a fridge around 2-5 Celcius..

Les parfait make the best glass locking jars and none cannabis seedbanks use them for this reason.

Im still getting 80% plus viability on some 15 year old beans..

Im not shure bout lesParfait jars, there are two models, with Ripples and With just pressured Gum.
You can make a Test with water, fill water inside and turn it upsidedown, and well it went straight out (the Gum-Version)..
The ones with gum are made for Vacuming, so you cook These in Boiling water until it creates an underpressure therefore creates Vacuum, but would you do that with Seeds inside?
The one with the Ripples might be ok, but they often have too less Ripples to make me feel save. Do you have a longterm-Observation of it?

I have many seeds I've kept in the fridge for years. They are in containers, stored within a small ice-chest which slows temp changes inside it. Even the 10yr old seeds pop with a 90%+ success rate.

Lately I've begun drying and freezing them. (Thanks for the tip on shattering/mashing to check moisture!) They go in a container which then goes into a thermos or other cooler, and finally into a freezer. Ideally I would like to design something with multiple drawers. The entire unit insulated, with insulated sections in each drawer. Each section would have insulated containers within, allowing removal/storage without large temp changes.

Could someone plz critique the following methods of Cannabis seed storage I am thinking about using in the future.

Method 1: Smaller Amounts

Place seeds into plastic 5,15, and 50ml Eppendorf centrifuges with equal weights of moisture indicating desiccant silica beads separated from the seeds using a cotton ball.

Next place the seed filled centrifuges into light proof mylar bags to prevent light damage. Also, place a couple desiccant silica beads into the mylar bags in case any moisture gets inside.

Next, place the seed filled mylar bags into sealed mason jars to lessen atmospheric fluctuations as well as prevent rodents or bugs from damaging the seeds. Inside the jar will have a 2 gram moisture indicating desiccant pack to prevent any moisture damage.

Next, place the seed filled mason jars into a refrigerator set to between 35-40f with thermometers and a hygrometer present around the fridge to continuously monitor temperature and humidity fluctuations.


Do you think that is overkill with the desiccants? Anything else to consider?

Method 2: Larger Amounts

Place seeds directly into a mason jar with a moisture indicating desiccant pack to prevent any moisture damage. The desiccant pack should be equal or less in weight than the total weight of the seeds to prevent damaging the seeds from being too dry.

Use mason jar sleeve to prevent light damage.

Next, place the seed filled mason jars into a refrigerator set to between 35-40f with thermometers and a hygrometer present around the fridge to continuously monitor temperature and humidity fluctuations.

1: put the silica-gel Packs into ofen just on lowest possible Heat with open door for 20, 30 Minutes, just so they are desaturated before you pack. Cause if you decide to pack the seeds on a foggy Day, you might even bring Moisture into the Game.


2: did you mean to use Glue to seal Jars? Bathroom- Silicon have antibacterial Thing. Glue probably too? OFTEN NOT EVEN WRITTEN EVEN INCLUDED Otherwise it would be great, but that might endanger positive Live.


3: Mansion Jars Need much Riffles, (test em with Water if thy leak, or just do my adviced airpress-Test)

Ditto.. this the way.

Do you let the mason jar stabilize to room temperature before opening it each time? If so, about how many minutes do you wait? Have you ever had your mason jar form condensation from opening it before it was at room temp?

Condensation? yes that was what lead to current protocol of waiting.
Five to ten minutes in the summer maybe, don't really measure time but feel the jar. When it feels the same as clean empty jar it is ready. Waiting is not necessary in the winter as seed fridge is in unheated part of building that stays cold and dry. In the winter i can spend hours looking through seeds without worry.
I like to keep a couple fresh clean jars with desiccant handy to dump seeds into after selections are made, maintenance ready to go.
